Annual Convention in Full Motion
November 13, 2004 – The Annual Convention is in full motion today. The first DMO Exchange session begins this morning, the Foundation will hold its PROAM Roundtable and there are plenty of Professional Development Seminars to attend.

Tonight, members will head to the National Trade Centre for the Icebreaker, "The Great Canadian Street Party." The night will be a sampling of all the diversity that Canada has to offer and includes food, entertainment and fun for all. A center "Canada Stage" will feature talented Canadian performers, while celebrity lookalikes will be roaming about the venue for photo ops with delegates.

Convention chair Paul Emmons calls the Icebreaker "the one thing that people don’t want to miss."

"The whole country is going to be showcased there, in particular Toronto and Ontario, but all other regions of Canada, too," says Emmons, who is a managing partner of the Halifax, Nova Scotia-based Atlantic Tours Gray Line. "(The Icebreaker features) our diverse culture, our music, our costumes and our entertainment, which will make for a great Icebreaker."

The Icebreaker is scheduled from 7-10 p.m. with transportation provided between the National Trade Centre and every Convention hotel from 6:30-10:15 p.m. The reception will feature food stations throughout with beef, salmon, oysters and a variety of fruits, salads and decadent desserts for delegates to sample.

Come early and stay late, so you can experience Canada at "The Great Canadian Street Party," an exclusive event for the NTA Convention.
